Oh. My. Word. Make this if you love Cinnabons! Recipe adapted from The Girl Who Ate Everything


3 cups flour
¼ tsp salt
1 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1 ½ cups milk
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1/2 cup butter, melted

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped pecans, (optional - I'm not a fan of pecan nuts so I left them out)

2 cups icing sugar
5 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence

Half a tub of cream cheese

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. In an electric mixer mix the flour, salt, sugar, baking powder, milk, eggs and vanilla. Once combined well, slowly stir in the 1/2 cup melted butter. Pour batter into a greased baking pan. 

2. In a large bowl, mix the 1 cup of softened butter, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and pecans until well combined. Drop evenly over cake batter by the tablespoonfuls and use a knife to marble/swirl through the cake.

3. Bake at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until toothpick comes out nearly clean from centre.

4. Place icing sugar, milk, vanilla and cream cheese in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth. Drizzle over warm cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.
